Metro Promotion Dept 1-800-999-6389 - Added 12/11/2020 by hpham_53

FILING COMPLAINTS
Metro is varying the terms of the promotion after the promotion has ended. On the 76th day after activation if you do not receive a text message to claim the $200 virtual MC, call the Promotions Dept (800-999-6389). If you do not get any satisfactory answers, file complaints with the following:
1. CEO of T-Mobile (mike.sievert@t-mobile.com)
2. BBB [bbb.org]
3. FTC [ftc.gov]
Here's the evidence to submit:
1. BestMVNO'sarticle [bestmvno.com].
2. Metro's 10/27/2020 internet archive [archive.org].


Metro has started sending out text to retrieve $200 prepaid VMC around 70 days after activation.

When does the promotion end?
"I went ahead and call myself to the Rebate and promotion department and the confirm me that promotion will be up until December 31st.Their # is 1-800-999-6389........"

Is the $30 monthly plan eligible?
I called several days ago about multiple orders when their website was very buggy. After dealing with that, I specifically asked about whether the $30 plan was eligible for this offer. After putting me on hold for a few minutes, the CSR said yes, the $30 plan was eligible for the $200 Mastercard deal. Though it's online only, they definitely knew about the deal so that's good.

A few others have called and all received yes when asking about the Mastercard $200 deal and the $30 plan. Not much else we can do but wait 75 days after activation for their text.

UPDATE : 1/5/2021

Metro has started sending rebates..

BAD NEWS: 10/28 activations are only getting $100 rebates.. Talked to several reps and everyone is giving different "start dates" for this promotion.. some are saying 10/30, others are seeing 11/13 "in their system"

Do you have to order the sim kit online? I wonder if I can order somewhere else in a cheaper price.

It says purchase a SIM kit from the website, not sure if it's a must or not. The most important is activate the phone online.

Must stay 75 days correct? So 3 months really. Minimum plan $50? I didn't see it listed. If anything this is free internet for several months or even make $50. When they had the older iPhone deals it was easy and cheap to get the iPhones unlocked. Not sure about these new ones. They unlock on their own after 6 months I believe. But who wants to stay 6 months. Not bad for free unlimited service for a bit.
